Dell Latitude 11 3190 (2-in-1) – Top 5 Pros and Cons
Dell perfectly describes the Latitude 11 3190 with a single sentence: “Designed to be kid-proof”. And to be honest, it is pretty perfect for a kid, especially in times like these, when online education seems to still be a huge part of students’ lives.
The compact and rigid design, along with the affordable price makes it a no-brainer purchase. Packed with just enough power to not be sluggish, and a touchscreen display the device is what every little student would want to have as their right-hand man in school.
Today we present you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the Dell Latitude 11 3190 (2-in-1).
3 reasons to BUY the Dell Latitude 11 3190 (2-in-1)
1. Design and build quality
With a rubber bumper all around the lid and the base, this laptop can for sure survive both accidental and non-accidental drops without suffering damage. The lid itself has a plastic cover and a Dell logo in the center. For an 11.6-inch laptop, it is pretty bulky, with a weight and profile of 1.44kg and 21.25 mm, respectively.
The lid opens with a single hand, revealing a Gorilla Glass protected display with thicker bezels than we would have wanted. The screen also has thick black bars, to accommodate for a decently comfortable keyboard and touchpad combo, which offer good key travel and clicky feedback, along with a pleasant and accurate tracking for the touchpad.
2. Display quality
The display that is used here is far from perfect, but it does a fine job for school and educational purposes. The 11.6-inch IPS panel has a resolution of 1366 x 768p. The unit has excellent viewing angles, a max brightness of 193 nits, and a deviation of 20%, which is a lot and can be seen in the upper right corner of the panel. The contrast ratio is really good – 1720:1. The panel also uses PWM to adjust brightness almost always, with the PWM being gone only after you set the screen at max brightness, which we would recommend. Fortunately, our Health-Guard profile gets rid of this issue completely.
In terms of color coverage, the display covers 54% of the sRGB color coverage.
The color accuracy of the display is way off both with and without our Design and Gaming profile. Here are the results from our test with the factory settings (left) and with our profile applied (right).

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.
Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.
Design and Gaming
This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.
Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

3. Battery life
The Latitude has a pretty beefy battery considering its size and hardware, with a 42Wh unit. It lasts for 12 hours and 55 minutes of Web browsing, and 10 hours and 58 minutes of video playback. Now, we conduct the battery tests with Windows Better performance setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits, and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with.
2 reasons NOT to buy the Dell Latitude 11 3190 (2-in-1)
The laptop has no RAM slots, as all of the memory is soldered onto the motherboard. Still, there is a single M.2 PCIe x4 drive for future storage expansion.
Here is our detailed teardown video, which shows how to access the single SSD slot.
The laptop doesn’t have a lot of ports but has some bases covered, such as an HDMI connector, two USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
